    This must be one of my favourite Sirius/Remus fics. I am not the biggest fan how the build up to the ending went (it felt rushed in a way' but I understand it wasn't the main focus), but until like chapter 12 or so this fic was absolutely stunning. Worth a read absolutely. Sirius in this was brilliant and heartbreaking.

    Summary

    Rather than allowing Harry to stay at Diagon Alley after he blew up Aunt Marge, the Ministry sends Harry back to the Dursleys. Harry returns to school after a terrible summer, to find that he's not the only one with this kind of secret. A student has been killed by his family. New screening measures are put into place by the Ministry: Every student must be given a medical exam and interview to look for child abuse. With Dumbledore facing an inquiry, Snape is entrusted with the task of making sure EVERYONE receives one.

    Answer to the "New measures for screening abuse" challenge at Potions and Snitches.

    The first chapter contains a character death and the whole story is quite dark. It begins at the beginning of Prisoner of Azkaban and is AU thereafter. Also note: this story is a "Snape is Harry's biological dad" story. This is not supposed to be the central theme of the story, but people have gotten annoyed that I didn't tell them at the beginning.

    Another note: There are no pairings in this story, or explicit sexual content. There are, however, mentions of homosexuality. Since there are no pairings, there is no slash content, but if the mere mention of homosexuality offends you, read something else.

    I really liked the way this fic handled the mistreating of Harry. It's not perfect and I did not like the beginning and there are some plot holes but overall a good read.

    Summary

    Tony had been expecting the Asgard invite to run along the same lines as SHIELD's had: a token tour around the premises and then straight into a lab. He hadn't expected the crowds of curious onlookers, splendidly dressed in Lord of the Fucking Rings get-ups, the cheering, the Red Carpet of Forever, and the Throne Room of Blinding Doom.

    Ah. I loved this a lot. It almost fel too fast, but time played such a big part in the story. Tony was Tony but different. An enjoyable read.

    Summary

    'You're a wizard, Harry' is easier to hear from a half-giant when you're eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you're seventeen and late for work.

    I absolutely adore this. Loved the author's way of writing, the dry humour, the dialogue and the characterisation. Brilliant.
